THE MOUSETRAP (McCarter): Christie brought to life

Director Adam Immerwahr and a wonderful cast make this piece that’s been running as long in London as Queen Elizabeth II alive with an energy that belies the play’s age.

Joe DiPietro’s thought-provoking piece is set in Woodrow Wilson’s second term, but it rekindles a period in the mid-20th century of sweeping biographical plays about historical figures.
